With a designer’s eye, a discerning palate, and a breeder’s deft touch, Frank Morton crossed Persian and curled cresses to create a gene pool, from which he selected Wrinkled Crinkled. Broad leaves are extremely ruffled and wrinkled along the margins and savoyed in the middle. A fluffy spicy addition to your salad mix, imparting a tang, plus an irresistible sweetness. Can be bunched for market. OSSI. Seed purchased directly from the independent breeder.
